Abstract: BACKGROUND: Depression is one of the major mental problems in the students’ population and it is continuously increasing. The catecholamine hypothesis postulated that depression results from functional deficiency of noradrenaline in the brain. In this study, the relationship between depression and twenty four hours urinary noradrenaline was analysed among medical students of KIU-Western Campus. METHOD: A cluster sampling approach was used to select University students in KIU. A 21-Item Beck Depression Inventory (BDI) was used to screen for depressive status among participants.
